The beauty and intrigue that manifests in our thinking to direct our lives can be decoded through our past experiences. Yulia Vysotskaya was born in the port city of Vladivostok in the Far Eastern part of Russia, a region greatly influenced by various Asian cultures.

It follows that Yulia is a patchwork of cultural intrigue. She recalls her first drawings at the age of four of Japanese geishas and princesses, rates Neapolitan ice cream a favourite, holds up the underground masterpiece of Soviet fiction – Mikhail Bulgakov’s ‘The Master and Margarita’ as a hands down multi-read, and is a keen fan of architectural genius Gaudi.


In her career as an illustrator Yulia says she is driven by the challenge of visually communicating clever ideas and says a kids’ wildlife poster for a New Zealand client, which was also executed across AdShels nationally, is one of her most unusual jobs. When not making art she is either cooking or travelling, and confesses to indulging in Netflix from time to time.
